. so it's not just that obama is up there, but it's a state where it's been very stable and very consistent in the polling. i think it might be more in play because i don't think they are conceding ohio. but they're worried about it and they need maybe a better plan "b" potentially. >> have you ever seen, or is there even at least sort of a famous circumstance in which all the polls consistently all year long pointed in one direction, and a partisan internal poll correctly predicted the results? >> yeah, that's almost always going to be wrong. especially when there's a consensus of 15 or 20 polls. maybe when you're in a senate race or something or a house race, where the public polls aren't as good. but the public polling is pretty reliable in pennsylvania. we know what the party bases are and where they live. this is why it's a state that always teases republicans, because it's a state where it's hard to -- they can get up to 48%, 49% pretty easily but it's really hard for them to get to 50%. unless because of the hurricane and where the power outages might be in the state, that

obama will take the state? >> it's a little hard to tell. we look at the gender gap and we start sort of taking all women and putting them in the same category and saying there's a uterus uprising here. there are different sorts of women who support president obama. so women of color are driving that gender gap. so yes, there's a gender gap, but a lot is driven by african-american women. southeast asian women who haven't forgotten george allen on the senate ticket, that suggests that the question of whether or not it's going to have an impact on the presidential race is whether or not those parts of the obama for america 2012 machine are prepared to turn out those communities and not just sort of thinking about women as an interest group relative to these reproductive rights policies. >> what do you know about how good they are? the logistics of running a get out the vote operation don't work for all types of voters. >> the virginia campaign to get out women of color and get out voters in northern virginia is extremely good. and then there's a hurricane. and the question of whether or

decades. president obama's victory in virginia reflected just a historic change. virginia is a state that's influx. the political history does not tell you much about what's going to happen next in virginia because what just happened in virginia in the last election was totally unprecedented in modern history. virginia is in new territory. and then what happened after that, was still further new tertorian. still more change. it makes the change more unknowable right now. in 2009 the year after it went blue, the state decided to elect this guy, republican governor bob mcdonnell. a fairly radical conservative guy who went to pat robertson's university saying that the government should use public policy to punish cohabitaters, homosexuals, and foreign cay tors, oh my. he pulled it into republican territory with him. early this year that republican legislature came up with a fertilized egg as person bill. a bill that would ban all abortion and hormonal contraception and invee tro investigat fertilization. the day the bill was passed through a committee, this is what the lobby of the hear

state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take halloween candy away from any children of obama supporters that they know tonight. he suggested it. i think the idea was he said that obama is a redistributionist, and so you can scare kids and their obama-supporting parents about redistribution if you steal the kids' candy. that was the tenor of the romney campaign today. even as they told the press corps that they were going to be very respectful and nonpartisan and refrain from attacking the president today. it was just a remarkable, remarkable day. a remarkable decision. i mean, president obama is expected to restart his campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occu

the storm response in his state. the governor is usually a caustic partisan critic of president obama, but this is not one of those days. one of the ways to watch the realtime storm response in new jersey's largest city today was to follow the amazing twitter feed of that city's mayor corey booker. this person tweets to mayor booker, transformer just went kaboom. the mayor tweets back. we'll alert the utility company. i'm five minutes from you and will do a drive by. nine minutes later, the mayor says, gratitude at river view with team helping get folks to shelter. thanks for the heads up. then somebody tweets to the mayor. mr. mayor, underpass still has many homeless underneath. . three minutes later, the mayor tweets back, i'll head down now to take a look with emergency personnel. then by 5:46, less than an hour later, thank you, just left. we were able to convince and transport 3 homeless brothers and sisters to shelter. there's a lot on the plate of a big city mayor on any day, but there's a lot to be done to respond to a storm of this magnitude too. sometimes that gets done pers

in those states. polling average in the state of colorado, it's very close. president obama ahead by less than a point. in michigan, it's president obama ahead by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ahead by more, by five points. then at 10:00 eastern time, polls will be closed in all of those states and we'll be closing polls in the 10:00 eastern time in that hour in the states that you see blinking right here. these four states. of those four states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things g

recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of th

state most affected by the disaster. i mean, generically speaking, this sort of appearance is not a remarkable concept. this thing becomes remarkable, though, to see president obama and chris christie standing together and praising one another and talking about the ways they are working together, and seeing their coordinated state and federal disasters, this sort of thing becomes remarkable today, only because president obama is a democrat, and chris christie is a republican, and chris christie specifically is a republican who has been a very caustic partisan critic of president obama, in his role as a campaign surrogate for mitt romney, who president obama is running against, in a presidential election that ends in six days. mitt romney and that campaign today, that campaign that chris christie has been supporting, they made a somewhat remarkable decision to go ahead and keep campaigning, today, to get back on the campaign trail and start doing partisan campaign rallies again, even while the president was still suspending his own schedule, so he could respond to the storm. so what
